Summary
Meet the subjects of history's greatest dramas: the first queens of England Though their royal husbands occupy the lion's share of history books, the queens of early England are fascinating subjects in their own right. Lisa Hilton's Queens Consort vividly evokes the lives and times of England's first queens, from Matilda of Flanders and the Norman conquest of England to Elizabeth of York and the beginning of the Tudor dynasty. By profiling twenty different queens, Hilton provides an intricate and dramatic composite of the English monarch: from the ruthless Isabella of France, who violently gained control of England by dispatching Edward II, to the beloved Matilda of Scotland, known for her intelligence and devotion despite her philandering husband, Henry I; and from a girl who was crowned at the age of nine to a commoner who climbed the social ladder at the most opportune moment. Queens Consort dispels many of the myths that have surrounded these women for centuries, while simultaneously illuminating lesser-known facts about their lives
Summary
Describes the lives of twenty women who were crowned queen of England between 1066 and 1503, exploring every facet of the position, from patronage, learning, and fashion to war, adultery, witchcraft, murder--and occasionally love
